Remove plastic covering on the rear to expose bulbs and 4 nuts that need to be unscrewed along the outer edges. Pop the tails out, and wha-la :)

yea its pretty easy! hte only thing u might have a problem with is that even u undo the bolts the tail light may be stuck due to all teh gunk in behind everything. so just be carefull and push it out!

Unless your subs are pushed RIGHT up against the tails, you should be able to pop them out. As Vadim321go said, they might appear to be stuck initially, but a good push gets the right out.

Inspect the seal!!!!!!! make sure the seal is crackless, clean and spongy!!! otherwise you will get water leaks into the trunk, which in turn will go into the spare wheelwell and then inturn rot out your trunk , ask bmw_7 for details. lol.
